Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
Following the events of the movie 'Clerks', Dante Hicks still works at the Quick Stop, and his best friend Randall Graves still 'works' at the video store (even though he spends most of his time figuring out ways to get Dante into trouble). However, with the arrival into town of diabolical billionaire megalomaniac Leonardo Leonardo, their lives are about to get more unusual, even if their jobs remain as unsatisfying and tedious as before. Soon, Dante and Randall find themselves thrown headlong into crazy adventures involving, in no particular order, a monkey, Little League Baseball, Korean animators, Canadian exports, lesbian ex-girlfriends of Randall, Judge Reinhold, the Matrix, refridgerator door locks and numerous unwarranted 'Star Wars' references. And as always, they receive very little in the way of constructive help from slackers Jay and Silent Bob. Written by
The original voice for Leonardo Leonardo was going to be played by Alan Rickman, but was replaced by Alec Baldwin courtesy of ABC. When Rickman was still on board, the cartoon designers got inspiration from his character Hans Gruber from Die Hard (1988). Disagreeing with the concept, Rickman suggested them not to keep too close to his own persona, so they pushed their research further for a while. Ironically enough, when Baldwin came on, the designers came back to the Hans Gruber look they first though of. See more »
[Randal's opening argument to the all-black jury of NBA players]
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury. Dante Hicks is just like you. He lurves grape soda. He knows what it's like when the guy at the supermarket won't take your "food stamps". Or how it feels to wait all month for your "welfare check".
[waving his arms from side to side]
Hey! Ho! Hey! Ho! Thank you.
Great... now the jury hates us.
Nonsense. I've got them eating out of my hand.

This is one of the funniest shows ever!!! I can't believe ABC cancelled such a brilliant show. I wish they would bring it back, I have the DVD though, it's a great buy. Personnally I thought this was better than the movie. Dante and Randall are hilarious together, and so are Jay and Silent Bob. My favorite was the flashback episode, I think it was Episode 2, where Randall and Dante get locked in a freezer. Watch this show, it's a classic!!
